pom pom bee

My son loves bees. He also loves games. So when I saw a way to combine his two loves into a great educational game, I leaped at the chance. All I had to do was raid my kids craft supplies (all from the dollar store – of course!) and the recycling bin to get everything I needed to churn out a whole colony of counting bees. Learn how to make the game and more than seven ways to play with it on my site, Creative Green Living. [how to make a bee themed counting game]
